An unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, NOSFERATU remains to many viewers the most unsettling vampire film ever made, and its bald, spidery vampire, personified by the diabolical Max Schreck, continues to spawn imitations in the realm of contemporary cinema.
"It doesn't scare us, but it haunts us. It shows not that vampires can jump out of shadows, but that evil can grow there, nourished on death."
"If you don't own it, by all means get this latest remastering."
"This Kino Classics Blu-ray edition of the film arrives with remarkable picture quality and a splendid audio presentation. With a nice, healthy collection of supplements, the overall package is a must for any cinephile's collection of classics."
"It's not just a great horror movie. It's a poem of horror, a symphony of dread, a film so rapt, mysterious and weirdly lovely it haunts the mind long after it's over."
"A masterpiece of the German silent cinema and easily the most effective version of Dracula on record."
"Watching Nosferatu is like standing in the same room as death itself."
Directed by F. W. Murnau
